Busy as a Chicken?

I am going to kick myself in the butt one of these day's! I went and told Boss Lady that I would help out by working more hours for this lovely 50% off sale we started on Thursday and goes till the 27th or something like that. She likes to use these words with people like me, "Might as well work while we have the hours, going to dry up here pretty soon." I know this, cuz I lived through last year, and it does all but dry up. Wal-Mart stay's hopping cuz, well, their Wal-Mart. I'm all about pulling my share and working to make money, but I'm thinking it's become a little over rated and I'm thinking of ways to slow it down, which in itself is crazy cuz it will, all by it's self anyway.

I think what I'm thinking about is slowing myself down. I was asking Preacher man why we couldn't seem to keep money in the saving account. After he looked at me and took a really deep breath, he said, "Something is always coming up, your specialist visit, the trucks needing work, paying off student loans and have you seen the price of gas and milk?" The reason he asks me about the gas and milk is cuz lately, he has been filling up the tanks and buying the groceries. The hours that I work cause for nothing much else to be able to get done. Not to mention the whole running thing.

Oh, by the way, I got a new app on my phone and I gotta say, I'm really liking it about now. The Garmen has made me so mad that I'm thinking about jumping up and down on it till it really stops working. The app is Nike+GPS and it maps my run, does my distance and time and even talks to me if I want it too. The very best part is it has all my music, it's all in my phone anyway. The only problem I have with it is I have to run with my phone in my hand and it's about to make me crazy. So I'm on the hunt for something to hold it on my body. 

Speaking of running, I better get after it. I need to clock my 3 miles today and get ready for work and that starts at 10. Going to be a very long few days. Just keep smiling!
